Our most recent creation was cereal bars made with Great Grains Cereal. With at least 30 grams of whole great per serving in each variety of Great Grains a bowl for breakfast is a heart healthy way to start the day. And it makes a yummy snack too!

My kids are my fuel, my motivation to do more and be better, and they are also my reward. I see them as a reflection of myself, and as I teach them I learn about myself and grow more confident in my own abilities and decisions. (Being a parent really is an amazing process.)
One thing I am constantly trying to become more confident in doing is creating recipes with my daughters. They love to help me in the kitchen, and while it isn’t something I have always enjoyed doing, it is something I want to foster a love for. So we bake, we cook and we eat together as often as we can.
Great Grains Cereal Bars
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 3 cups Post Great Grains Cereal (any variety)
- 1/2 cup of chocolate chops (optional)
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Combine butter, sugar and honey in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue to boil for 1 to 2 minutes, then immediately remove from heat.
Stir in cereal. Pour onto lined cookie sheet. Optional – sprinkle with chocolate chips. Using another piece of parchment paper press down gently.
Refrigerate for about an hour, cut into bars and serve.

In a survey by Great Grains 83 percent of women think the greatest obstacle to reaching their full potential is what they think of themselves, rather than what others think of them.
That is a powerful statement, and I agree. So it is important that I remind my daughters regularly about all of the things that make them great. And while I am doing that I’ll pat myself on the back (just a little bit) because I am a pretty great mom.
What makes you great?
